Notes

Dates or Sequential Designation:
Began with vol. 8, no. 7 (Apr. 1944).
Numbering Peculiarities:
Vol. 8, nos. 7-11 (Apr.-Aug. 1944) are misprinted v. 7, nos. 7 -11. Vol. 9, no. 2 (Nov. 1944) misprinted as v. 8, no. 2.
Numbering Peculiarities:
Vol. 11, no. 5 (Feb. 1947) misprinted as v. 11, no. 4, but then from v. 11, no. 6 through v. 12, no. 1 the misprint is 2 issues off until it was corrected with v. 12, no. 3 (Dec. 1947), for instance, v. 12, no. 2 is misprinted as v. 11, no. 12.
Numbering Peculiarities:
In January 1974, two issues were published: v. 38, no. 4, and a "progress edition" numbered v. 38, no. 5. That issue throws off the numbering of the issues for the rest of the volume, so v. 38, no. 12 is August instead of September. They fix it by having both the September and October 1974 issues called v. 39, no. 1.
Numbering Peculiarities:
Vol. 52, no. 10 (July 1988) was misprinted as v. 52, no. 11.
Numbering Peculiarities:
Vol. 53, no. 12 to v. 54 no. 8 were misprinted one issue off as v. 53, no. 11 to v. 54, no. 7. This was corrected with v. 54, no. 9 (June 1990).

Your Most Economical Pasture Supplement
A liquid pasture supplement currently PRICED AT LESS THAN 50% OF ITS EQUIVALENT FEED VALUE when compared to corn and cottonseed meal and when using feed evaluation factors of NRC (Nutritional Research Council) and Morrison's Feeds and Feeding, or when compared with corn using the USDA formula.
The USSC'S brand of HEAVY BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES and FORTIFIED BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES MIXTURES have many other important economic advantages,
when compared with conventional feed supplements in dry or pellet form:
They can be handled, stored and distributed to cattle
on pasture at considerably less cost, and cattle will self-ration themselves to reasonable daily intake when having access to
unlimited quantities.
They can be distributed to cattle on pasture on a twicea-week basis in inexpensive field troughs such as salvage bath tubs, in which case one tub will accommodate approximately 60
COWS.
Our FORTIFIED MOLASSES MIXTURES, tailored to
fit specific Florida conditions, are ideal vehicles to force-feed a safe and well balanced supply of additional PROTEIN in the form of Urea, extra PHOSPHORUS, COPPER, COBALT, and VITAMIN A; over and above the natural rich content of energy, protein, minerals, trace elements and Vitamins of our

Working Together t
Florida Restaurateurs
Florida cattlemen, Beef Council members, and officials of the
Florida Restaurant Association have held several meetings in recent months to further aid in helping promote beef in hotels
and restaurants throughout the state. Much progress has been made and the Beef Council has been asked to assist in this year's "Master Chefs on Stage" promotion where Florida beef will be used in the competition. Also restaurant owners are becoming better acquainted with grades of beef as being the same in all areas of the country. As an example, Jerry Broz, owner of Famous Restaurant in Lake Worth, has announced that he will discontinue any reference to "Western" beef in his menus. Shown
below is a facsimile of a portion of his menu, with that reference set for elimination. You can help, too, by telling restaurant
people in your area that Florida beef grades are no different than other localities.

Anaplas
mosisrV-I/ -b
Disease of cattle destroys the red blood corpuscles. Stricken animals become anemic, emaciated, often die.
On June 17, veterinary scientists announced achievement of a long-sought goal-successful development of a vaccine as an aid in the prevention and control of anaplasmosis, a major cattle disease. It resulted from combined efforts by researchers at Oklahoma State University, Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station, and Fort Dodge Laboratories. The vaccine, tradenamed 'Anaplaz,' is now in production and expected to be available to veterinarians in mid-September.
EW cattlemen and dairymen realize the severe toll anaplasmosis takes in death losses and reduced beef and milk production. Cost of the disease is estimated at $35,000,000 to $50,000,000 each year. In Oklahoma alone, losses in a single year have been estimated to be as high as $6,900,000.

Shorthorn bulls to work in your commercial herd.

Shorthorn dispositions are ideal for Florida pastures. This is important, for animals with good dispositions tend to fatten faster, are safer to work with and are more economical to produce. They do not tend to become frustrated and therefore give up under extreme weather conditions. Cattle with good dispositions even tend to have a brighter shade of red meat.
Extra profits can be yours with the Shorthorn crossbreeding program.
You can market your calves earlier . you can have more weight per calf at weaning time . you can have the three to four cents
market price differential for good calves from Shorthorn bulls.
Write this association today for more information and the latest list of Florida Shorthorn breeders who are standing ready with the top quality cattle to supply your needs.

FCA Believes in Vaccination
SFULTON-COLE SEED- Co.
FLTURALTFLORDA THE FLORIDA Cattlemen's Association believes that calfhood vaccination of
heifer calves is the most practical way for Florida cowmen to work toward ridding Florida of Brucellosis.
This position was reaffirmed during FCA's 1965 Mid-Year Conference at Naples in June. Directors voted that "since calfhood vaccination has reduced the incidence of infection in official calfhood vaccinates to less than one percent in the state, FCA reaffirms its position that calfhood vaccination be the official Brucellosis program for the counties in Florida that are not now modified-certified or in the process of becoming modiLEADS IN' SEEDS fied-certified."
Freedom of the individual to operate his business as he pleases is, of course, a cherished right .. but the goal of ridding Florida of Brucellosis by calfhood vaccination can only be attained by all cattlemen vaccinating
Quoin, ql ee their calves!
Vaccinate Those Calves!
~7A WHO IS going to decide whether or not you vaccinate your calves?
-e ~This answer should be obvious. The respongibihty of deciding s S99D COMPANY whether or not you vaccinate your calves for Bang's rests with each individual cattleman.
Phone 539-1331 We're sure you realize that no one else can make this decision for
you. FCA can continue to remind you that calfhood vaccination of your ALTURAS, FLA. heifer calves is of vital importance to the future of Florida's cattle inCOMPLETE HARVESTING SERVICE dustry, but the final decision is still yours.
We hope that all cattlemen that are now vaccinating their calves will assume the responsibility of discussing the importance of calf vaccination with his neighbor who is not vaccinating and urge him to start a vaccination program.
MEINCKE LIQUID APPLICATOR Remember, the time for action is now!
Has Your Association Paid Its Dues?
LOCAL ASSOCIATION dues were payable several months ago, but to date a few associations still have not paid.
The Florida Cattlemen's Association is now in the latter part of another active and worthwhile year. FCA's record has been established through the conscientious efforts of each affiliated association and the individual members that are the life-blood of each local unit. Although dues collections this year aren't really bad, let's all aim for 100 percent Liqui-Spred in Action collections right now and make this one of the best years in this respect.

AVAILABILITY
That's the Mineral-Vitamin-Protein supplement mixes generDifference ally fall into three categories: 1) Those which contain every known ingredient, with the hope of coverin P. D. Q. ing whatever the cow might need, yet with little
regard for proper ratios; 2) Those with the proper ingredients combined in the ratio found in the cow's body; and 3) P.D.Q., with the proper ingredients combined with relation to those found in pastures and water, in the ratios necessary to convert to the ratios the cow
is known to need.
Take Calcium and Phosphorus for example: Cows utilize them in the ratio of about 1-1 2 to 1. But they don't digest equally, so we mix them so they are digested 1-1,2 to 1. This is the way we combine all the ingredients of P. D. Q., so they react to each other to provide the needed nutrients after digestion and aid in the assimilation of grass and feeds-That's availability!
We go even further. P. D. Q. mixes vary with the season and with the needs of your particular cows. You just can't do better than P. D. Q.!

FLORIDA CATTLEMEN'S ASSOCIATION A Report from the Execfie Vkc, PrAent FLORIDA'S NO FENCE LAW has been in effect 15 years. Former governor Fuller Warren recently estimated that the law has saved over 200 lives during this period. He mentioned that in 1947-48 (two years prior to enactment of the law) there were 933 accidents, 257 persons injured and 24 killed due to livestock on the highways in the state. OUR SHARE OF EXPORTS seems to be on the increase (see the August 15th newsletter for more details). We've recently been advised that Dr. Fernando Gonzales of Managua, Nicaragua, has purchased 650 head of cattle in Florida and 100 in Texas. Dr. Gonzales, long time friend of W. A. Krusen (former FCA state director), bought 100 Charolais and Charbray heifers and four purebred Charolais bulls from K-Bar Ranch at Zephyrhills. FCA Director H. C. Douglas, Jr., is the manager of the K-Bar operation. G. T. Stack, president of the International Trade Development Council, coordinated many of the sales. FLORIDA CATTLEMEN may get some good out of imports Siratro, a new legume native to Australia has been grown with much success at the Indian River Field Laboratory at Fort Pierce. The plant produces its own nitrogen, is higher in protein than Fangola, and is a perennial apparently unaffected by frost. It produces a large quantity of seed that is excellent for quail. Some testing is being done at experiment stations in north Florida. DON'T FORGET FCA's 1965 annual convention slated for St. Augustine October 13-15. This event already shows promise of being FCA's biggest. If you want in the headquarters hotel you'd better write Jack Yates, Manager, Ponce de Leon Hotel, St. Augustine, today! TOMMY SLOAN, Florida Beef Council chairman, reports that income thus far strongly indicates a new record in the offing for 1965! Beef Council and representatives of the Florida Restaurant Association have been busy making plans to help insure a successful Master Chefs on Stage event at Miami Beach October 26-28. FBC provided the beef for this event last year, which was witnessed by 30,000 persons. The winning chefs then went on to participate in International competition in Zurich, Switzerland, where they won the gold medal for first place. IT IS IMPORTANT that you calfhood vaccinate your calves for Bangs, if you are not already doing so. FCA's brucellosis committee strongly urges all cattlemen to calfhood vaccinate A. H. GOEDERT, JR., has advised FCA that he is in need of' good feeder cattle for his new Bar JC Ranch feedlot, located near Lake City. He says you can call him collect in Jacksonville, or phone Dick Howell in Bartow. TRAVELS--July 29, FCA Comm. work, Okeechobee; 30th, Pres. W. D.

No calf, no profit 4 ~ V 4h %I' Ia Itma. Calf crop percentage has a lot to do with cow herd returns. So does thriftiness of calves at birth-and their weight at weaning. To get big crops of thrifty calves and wean 'em heavy, you need cows in good condition-for breeding, for calf-building, for milking. And good condition depends on good nutrition. But even the strongest grass and roughage can't supply all the nutrients beef cattle are known to need. It's what you feed with them that makes the difference. So MoorMan Research has packed into Mintrate* Blocks the multiple-source proteins, urea, base and trace minerals, vitamins A and D that can help pull added nutritional power from your grass and roughage. The concentrated combination of working ingredients in self-fed Mintrate Blocks isn't diluted with grain, hay, stems, mill screenings or other added fiber. Such fillers in a block can't help your cattle digest and utilize grass and roughage. That's why so many costconscious cattlemen feed extrapowerful, research-proven Mintrate Blocks that help produce low-cost results. With Mintrate Blocks, too, there's an added advantage: You can choose from 10 different blocks to fit different needs. Four levels of palatability help match consumption to varying conditions. And there are Mintrate Blocks with extra vitamin A and antibiotic when needed. It's'no wonder that more than 21 million Mintrate Blocks have been self-fed since MoorMan's introduced the pioneer proteinmineral-vitamin block in 1952. And it's no wonder that Mintrate Block users keep reporting high calf crop percentages, sturdy calves at birth, good milk flow that helps wean heavy calves. And they report cows clean well and breed back quickly, too. Start now to self-feed Mintrate Blocks for high-performance use of grass and roughage. Your MoorMan Man can help plan a program that best suits your conditions. Why milk "part-cows" for less return? Dairy research shbws that many cows produce less milk and profit than they could-for a simple reason: They don't get enough milk-making raw materials -they're underfed. So their milk-making motors idle. But there's a practical, organized way to rev up those motors-with a MoorMan Cow-Power Feeding Program. It puts the emphasis where it belongs-on profit per cow. If you have dairy cows, get the Cow-Power story from your MoorMan Man. Moorman Mfg Co, Quincy, Illinoi

In this article there was no mention about the necessity for the breeder owning a part interest of the bull, not to exceed four co-owners and being the sole owner of the cow. This has caused several inquiries to this office in which many assumed that as long as the AT. concern had a permit on the bull that any one could procure their services and seen and record the calves.

S7 SC / Use a PURIFIED Phenothiazine Drench Until recently all phenothiazine was standard grade product. Now, in addition to fine particle size a new, more efficient grade of phenothiazine has been developed. PURIFIED phenothiazine properly formulated offers livestock raisers a superior drench. Tests show it to give the highest efficiency of control of stomach and intestinal worms. A new formula using PURIFIED phenothiazine micronized for fine particle size, disperses a concentrated dose into the fourth stomach and intestinal tract. Tests prove this action kills more worms and more kinds of worms with little of the formula being absorbed. Scientists report surprising differences in the effectiveness between PURIFIED phenothiazine drench and ordinary, small particle, green drench. Why settle for partial results? Start getting better feed conversion ...faster rate of gain maximum results from your cattle by using a PURIFIED phenothiazine drench. Ask Your Dealer for PURIFIED Phenothiazine Drench and bottom unloading. O'Leary explained, which in turn makes it possible to keep a continual turn over of the contents, rather than being limited to loading and unloading from the top.

Trouble shooter Nothing gives you a better chance of stopping disease before complications set in When your feeders are feverish, breathing fast and running at the nose, is it shipping fever? Maybe. Maybe not. Could be terminal pneumonia. Or pleurisy. Or rhinitis. Truth is, symptoms as broad as these can fit any one of several diseases. Worse yet, each disease may be complicated by the presence of several different organisms. Only a lab examination can identify the specific germs. But that can take 24 hours or more. You don't want to sit on your hands all that time. So do this: Shoot your cattle the minute they appear sick with one treatment that gives you the best chance of solving your problems. Ii That's Terramycin Injectable Solution. Terramycin delivers the broadest possible bacterial spectrum in farm drugs today. And the highest possible blood levels. In the fastest possible time. And it maintains these blood levels longer than any other broad-spectrum drug. Terramycin Injectable Solution gives you an excellent chance of being halfway home on a cure even before you get the exact diagnosis. (And even if Terramycin turns out not to be the drug of choice against the primary disease, it gives you today's strongest protection against secondary complications.) Terramycin Injectable Solution.

Your Most Economical Pasture Supplement A liquid pasture supplement currently PRICED AT LESS THAN 50% OF ITS EQU4VALENT FEED VALUE when compared to corn and cottonseed meal and when using feed evaluation factors of NRC (Nutritional Research Council) and Morrison's Feeds and Feeding, or when compared with corn usinq the USDA formula. The USSC'S brand of HEAVY BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES and FORTIFIED BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES MIXTURES have many other important economic advantages, when compared with conventional feed supplements in dry or pellet form: They can be handled, stored and distributed to cattle on pasture at considerably less cost, and cattle will self-ration themselves to reasonable daily intake when having access to unlimited quantities. They can be distributed to cattle on pasture on a twicea-week basis in inexpensive field troughs such as salvage bath tubs, in which case one tub will accommodate approximately 60 cows. Our FORTIFIED MOLASSES MIXTURES, tailored to fit specific Florida conditions., are ideal vehicles to force-feed a safe and well balanced supply of additional PROTEIN in the form of Urea, extra PHOSPHORUS, COPPER, COBALT, and VITAMIN A; over and above the natural rich content of energy, protein, minerals, trace elements and Vitamins of our HEAVY BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES. Moreover, the "USSC" brand gives you protection or assurance that the product is from an IDENTIFIED AND DEPENDABLE SOURCE OF SUPPLY and also assures you that you are getting the full benefit of over twenty-five years of EXPERIENCE AND KNOW-HOW in important quality control measures employed in the processing and through the feeding of thousands of head of cattle annually.

The same sources continued the information saying that the situation is worse now because of the disorder reigning inside the lines of the regime, and also because of a great lack of medicine to fight cattle disease. This crisis was discussed by the Cuban Medical Association in communist Cuba when a short time ago it called for a meeting of veterinarians to review the problem. There, they discussed that tuberculosis in the island had grown because of the tuberculosis in the cattle and there were many persons who were close to the cattle ill of the sickness produced by the brucellosis in the cattle. And while the people of Cuba are suffering the rationing of meat and the threat of getting a disease transmitted through the meat they sell, the CaVtro communist regime continues sending meat to foreign markets in its eagerness to get dollars.

All avenues are constantly being expoed by the Beef Council to continue promoting beef. Keep the dimes coining! V Florida cattlemen, Beef Council members, and officials of the Florida Restaurant Association have held several meetings in recent months to further aid in helping promote beef in hotels and restaurants throughout the state. Much progress has been made and the Beef Council has been asked to assist in this year's "Master Chefs on Stage" promotion where Florida beef will be used in the competition. Also restaurant owners are becoming better acquainted with grades of beef as being the same in all areas of the country. As an example, Jerry Broz, owner of Famous Restaurant in Lake Worth, has announced that he will discontinue any reference to "Western" beef in his menus. Shown below is a facsimile of a portion of his menu, with that reference set for elimination. You can help, too, by telling restaurant people in your area that Florida beef grades are no different than other localities. We Serve The Finest Choice and Prime Western Beef

He said the sale will be held at the station, located just north of Brooksville, beginning at 1:00 p.m. Auctioneer will be Jim Pace of Gainesville. The sale offering will include 24 Angus, five Brahmans, 18 Herefords, and two Santa Gertrudis. The day's activities will start at 10:00 a.m. with an open house and inspection of the sale bulls, while lunch will be served at noon by the Hernando County Cattlemen's Association partment. After being trimmed they are scrubbed in a rotary washer to free them of manure and other foreign matter. On leaving the rotary washer the hides are put through a fleshing machine. In this operation they are further cleaned, and the flesh side is cleared of bits of fat and other flesh. The flesh side is planed down to a smooth, uniform surface. Next, the hides move by chain conveyors to the raceway curing vats where they are cured in circulating brine for 14-16 hours. They are then put through a hydraulic squeeze roll, graded and bundled for sale and shipment. Back on the beef line the carcass is eviscerated, and is inspected by federal inspectors. Before moving through the washing and shrouding areas, the carcass is split into sides. After the carcass has been chilled to just above freezing, the cloths are removed. Plant graders grade the carcasses and tentatively decide in what trade channels they will realize the greatest net return. Many of the carcasses return their greatest value through the primal cuts room, we were told. Still others go to the boning tables where they are boned out for the boneless beef trade, including the plant's own table-ready meats kitchen. The group also toured the pork cutting line of the plant. On this line the pork sides are separated into primal cuts. The ham is the first cut removed, and is trimmed, graded, weighed and ready for curing and smoking. Next the sides are reduced to green bellies, trimmed and made ready for curing and smoking. Smoked bacon sides are sliced and are wrapped by operators who check carefully the weight of the contents of each package. One item of interest noted was that both beef and pork trimmings may be routed through the continuous frank machine. This unit accepts raw materials such as boneless beef and pork, spices and other ingredients, and turns out franks at the other end which are cured, smoked, and ready for packaging. Following the plant tour the group

Three sons of each bull from the show string sell (6 bulls); 10 fancy Ballot daughters from the herd replacement group; 16 daughters of Ermitre with calf at foot by Ballot and rebred to Ballot; 21 daughters of Moles Hill Eileenmere listened to several livestock buyers discuss livestock evaluation, grades, and procurement. Tour members participated in the talks and a great deal of valuable information was obtained on those phases of the industry. Further conferences were held with packer and retailer representatives and then the tour schedule took us to the eastern seaboard. The trip was made by train and lively group discussions were held enroute covering items we had seen and heard since the tour started. At the A. C. Lawrence Leather Company at Peabody, Massachusetts, officials of the company met with the group to give a briefing on the operation of their industry. Experienced guides with portable speakers explained the many processes needed to convert cured calfskins into the various leathers made from such raw materials. A number of men and machines work on each skin before it is finished leather ready for a discriminating customer. It was pointed out that spreading calfskins on panels which move through drying tunnels is an important intermediate step in producing quality leather. Of historical interest while in the Boston area, was a side trip to view the various monuments commemorating the Revolutionary War. At an evening session, following dinner, Swift representatives explained their operations and their distribution system which supplies quality meats from western farms, ranches, and feedlots to the heavily populated areas of New England. On Friday morning we took a peek at competition. Fish is an important competitor of meat along the Atlantic coast. At the Boston Fish Exchange we saw a boatload of fish from the Grand Banks off Newfoundland being auctioned off to fish wholesalers. The unloading of fish is done at the Boston Fish Pier and much of it is still done by human labor. There appeared to be a lot of room for mechanization in the operation. Some of the tour members went from the pier area to Swift's New England central office to learn how the company follows product sales throughout New England. Others went to sales units operated by the company in the wholesale market areas in Boston. In New York on Saturday morning the session was devoted to a discussion of the meat business in metropolitan New York. Swift officials and others in the meat trade were on hand to give a rundown on this subject. When "school let out" at noon Saturday, most of the group scattered to see the sights of the city including the United Nations building, a boat trip around Manhattan and Times Square. Back to "school" on Monday morning saw the group on the Brooklyn Market. There, an old wholesale meat markct survives to serve independent retailers in an area which has few supermarkets.

Green Cove Springs, Fla. Ph. 284-3982 Siratro Is Legume with Potential A NEW LEGUME which has been rated as the summer-growing perennial legume with the best potential in south Florida is now being grown experimentally at various points throughuot the state and shows outstanding promise as a cattle feed for south Florida ranges. Albert E. Kretschmer, Jr., associate agronomist with the University of Florida Indian River Field Laboratory at Fort Pierce is in charge of the project and thus far all reports have been highly favorable. The legume, called Siratro, is of Australian origin. It was first planted at the Indian River laboratory on June 20, 1962. Seedlings were then transplanted from the greenhouse to a 10 foot row. The original plants are still living and seed production from these has resulted in the germination and survival of many new plants. In addition to the row planting, seedlings were also transplanted to a fence row in March, 1963, for seed collection purposes. One of the outstanding features of siratro is that it produces its own nitrogen, and because of this it goes very well with Pangola grass. It also tests considerably higher in protein value than the Pangola. Another feature is that the legume is apparently unaffected by frost and this opens the door to the possibility that it may be used further north into central Florida even though the southern part of the state is the area primarily under consideration at this time. When hit by frost the plant is burned back to the roots, according to Kretschmer, but it is not destroyed. It grows back quickly and is able to generate new shoots in the spring. The number of freezes in a given winter, however, and the length of time between each freeze would have some effect on the plant's ability to survive. In a report released by Kretschmer he states that siratro has an extremely large taproot which should enable it to survive on well drained soils. Also, it is able to withstand high water tables for short periods of time as evidenced by experimental growth in flatwoods areas. As far as comparison is concerned, it may best be compared with white clover. Preliminary tests indicate optimum requirements for lime, potash and phosphate are similar to those for white clover. Light applications of lime or fertilizer, however, will not result in noticeably large growth decreases as would be the case with the clover. Crude protein analyses have been made on several samples of siratro. Different section of mature stolons (runners) which are of the approximate diameter of a pencil and a year old were found to have crude protein contents of from eight 40 The Florida Cattleman WORKING to improve Our Fair View Angus with PERFORMANCE TESTED BULLS ROUTE 1 Box 470 PHONE 595-3966 CITRA, iORIDA OR 595-3963 Registered Angus Cattle RANCH Mr. & Mrs. Lem Crofton, Owners Route 1 Phone: 485-2642 Box 114 Gainesville, Florida REGISTERED ANGUS M &M Ranch R.

Fractionation of one plant shoot which was about 18 inches long showed the crude protein content to be concentrated in the following manner: Leaves and stems-19.3; seed stalks15.3; immature seed pods and seeds25.2; almost mature seed pods (still green color) 15.2: almost mature seeds-21.1; mature seed pods (brown)-7.8; mature seeds-32.4 When the legume was grown in combination with Pangola grass the protein content of the mixture was found to varv from 7.9 to 11.1 percent. This variation depended, of course, upon the quantity of siratro present in the mixture. As mentioned, it is not known how far north siratro can grow as a perennial. Seeds or plants have been distributed to experiment stations in north and west Florida, and a good stand has been established at Gainesville. Because new shoots of the plant are evidently able to arise from any portion near its crown either above or below the soil surface, a well developed taproot and plant-although frozen back to the soil-seems to be able to generate new shoots in the spring. The important factor to consider is the number of freezes and the intervals between them. It is believed sirutro will grow as a perennial in zones E, F, G, H, I, J and K as outlined by the federal-state frost warning service. This includes the part of Florida south of a line from about Titusville to Brooksville. The use of siratro seed in commercial quantities is, at this time, very nearly prohibitive. By comparison with other seed the expense is quite high since it most be imported from Australia. An effort is being made to collect sufficient seed so that small commercial quantities will be available in the near future. Kretschmer added that the legume also serves very well as feed for quail.

The event, held this year at Deriso Angus Ranch near Tampa, was highlighted by a number of speakers and a series of demonstrations on proper animal husbandry practices. Bill Terry, southeastern fieldman for the American Angus Association and Price Brown, Deriso herdsman, worked together to open the program by demonstrating correct procedure in tattooing, castration and foot-trimming. Headlining the program as featured guest speaker was Dr. Robert A. Long, chairman of the University of Georgia's department of animal industries, who discussed the need for production records and the part they play in the future of the herd. Long said, "An accurate set of records should be maintained on the entire herd, not just the top 10 or 20 head. This is the only true index of progress a cattleman can reliably use. "Also," concluded Long, "the records you keep should cover everything which has to do with profit and loss. There is nothing that creates quite as much incentive to upgrade an operation as the realization you may be losing a bit of money here and there." Florida speakers who appeared on the program were Bob and Evelyn Deriso, owners of Deriso Angus Ranch; B. Ed._

No stranger to the Angus business, the new field man was manager of Whitetail Farms in ('onnecticut where he fitted and showed Bunmere. the outstanding bull that sired the 1952 International champion male. In the early 1950's he was associated with Caroland Farms in Landrum. South Carolina, where he was catte manager. Following that he was on the staff at Black Mark Farm in Texas. Vogt is 38 Years old. He is married and is the father of four children-one son and three daughters. He and his family are making their home at Perry, Georgia, favoring this area because it is very nearIv centrally located. The Georgia Angus Association is one of the country's largest state associations. It was one of the first associations to establish a fuiltime fieldman's position.

North Florida Cattleman Likes Shorthorn Crossbred Calves Ej, _. T. M. "MAC" HOWERTON, JR., is a north Florida cattleman who likes the idea of using Shorthorn bulls when it comes to producing top quality commercial calves. He prefers them over herd bulls of any other breed, in fact. He has been using them in his commercial cattle operation for the past 10 years and, in his own words, "couldn't be more pleased." Howerton's 525 acre Buena Vista Farm is located in Madison county. Lying just north of Madison it actually connects with the city limits of the town itself. The 300 acres of improved pasture supports his herd which numbers five bulls and nearly 150 brood cows. During a recent tour of the farm Howerton commented quite freely on the advantages he finds in the breed. "There are," he said, "two main reasons why I like Shorthorns-the size they give to the calves and the price I get for them. It has been my experience that the calves run satisfactorily large for their age at weaning and they consistently bring me two to three cents more per pound than the going market price." Howerton started producing cattle some 12 years ago. "At first," he says, "Shorthorns were not my choice. I experimented a bit with other breeds but didn't get the success I felt I should have. Eventually I tried Shorthorn bulls and after seeing the kind of calf they produced I felt I should stay with a good thing. I've used them ever since." The calf crop in Howerton's operation is now running around 85 percent over a six month breeding season. He is in the process of working toward a four month season because he feels this will he one major step of simplifying problems in handling and management. He also feels this will increase the calf crop substantially. "An 85 percent figure may not sound high to some people," Howerton BUENA VISTA Farms is the owner of this Shorthorn herd sire. commented, "but when you stop to consider it was running just 40 percent less than 10 years ago this represents a noticeable increase." The Howerton herd is fully accredited. Worming is carried out twice a year and all horned calves are dehorned. The herd is on a creep feeding program in the winter and cottonseed meal pellets are fed for supplement. Automatic oilers are also used. Howerton feels that breeding heifers relatively early is good. "Not so early as to be damaging," he said. "but early enough to know as soon as possible where you're going in reproduction with the individual females." In addition to the previously mentioned 300 acres of improved pasture at Buena Vista Farm, 25 acres are given over to cropping, approximately 30 acres are used to produce hay (Argentine and Coastal Bermuda) and the balance is in timber. Howerton is a registered forester and he has strong feelings regarding the workability of cattle and timber. "After a stand of timber gains enough maturity so that it won't be damaged by cattle," he said, "it provides a definite advantage in a cattle operation. Not only do trees offer shelter and protection to the cattle during adverse weather conditions, the shade also affords comfort for them when the sun is shining hot the way it does in Florida." Howerton likes a long bull and one that stands fairly high. None of them carries an excess of fat and all are well muscled with plenty of good bone. As far as condition of the bulls is concerned Howerton has found them to be very easy keepers that do extremely well on grass. A great deal of the success in the increased calf crop is due to the strenuous culling program Howerton has entered into. He estimate that he puts 15-20 BROOD COWS are producing 85 percent calf crop. T. M. HOWERTON, Jr. at his Madison County farm. replacement heifers into the herd each year and it looks as if this will probably be the procedure from this point on. "With the herd numbering its present size I feel that to enlarge it would build problems as far as management is concerned," he said. "The aim now is to maintain the herd at a 140-150 brood cow level and constantly increase the quality." Recent recognition has come Howerton's way. He was elected president of the Madison County Cattlemen's Association which was formed in June, 1964. This may be taken as an indication of the confidence that other cattlemen in the area have in him and his operation. At the conclusion of the tour of his farm Howerton said, 'I feel there are two factors which will keep us in the cattle business for a long time to come-good basic management procedures and Shorthorn herd bulls. The necessity of good management speaks for itself, and as far as the other is concerned, it's real hard to beat the kind of calves you get from Shorthorns." Lassie Membership Nears 1,000 A REPORT FROM the American Shorthorn Association states that membership for the National Shorthorn Lassies, the association's auxiliary, is very close to 1000. At the end of 1964 total membership was at 978, and it is anticipated that it will top the 1000 mark soon. The membership contest will be continued as in the past and membership awards will again be made in Chicago in November. Each chapter's officers will receive contest details soon.

Dream of Ranching Is Now Reality by JEAN S. MULLINS HOW MANY dreams ever come true? Well, ours did. My husband and I moved to Winter Haven in 1951 from the big city of Jacksonville, where we had resided for three years. We felt like changing the name of the lovely little town to Winter Heaven, as the surrounding countryside certainly resembled a paradise. During our many rides through Polk County, we were constantly drawn to the area surrounding Lake Hamilton. One ranch in particular appealed to us. The Smith Ranch, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Henry Smith, was a thing of beauty. Half of the land bordered the shores of Lake Hamilton; the other half lay across a narrow paved road, which was lined on each side by large moss laden oaks. After gazing at the beautiful Shorthorns feasting on the lush green pastore, we dreamed a dIream. Maybe some day we would have a ranch such as this. My husband, although a graduate accountant. has always been interested in ca',tle ranch ing_ as his father, George, Sr., has owned a 560 acre ranch near Ocala for many years. The years passed and with the years our family grew. We now have two children. Mike, who is ten and a five year old daughter, Georgene. Our desire for some acreage outside of the city -rew with our children. As parents, we have always felt that raising children close to the earth, instilled values in them that are never acquired by just "city life." This past May a real estate agent called my husband and told him there was 80 acres for sale near Winter Haven. They drove toward Lake Hamilton. What a surprise when the salesman stopped at the Smith Ranch' Mr. and Mrs Smith had decided to sell the 80 acre across the road from the main ranch. Without getting out of the car. my husband said, "I'll take it.'" We are stocking it with grade cattle (including five crossbred Shorthorns from I)ehbie and Steve Smith, grandchildren of the Smiths). have put in a deep well and are the proud owners of a beautiful mare who is due to foal in January. Every afternoon finds our family "out at the ranch," walking among the sprawl ing oaks and stately pines. Garland P. Snyder, a part of Smith Ranch for 18 years and blessed with a sense of humor, ha; affectionately dubbed my husband "Texas George.' One lesson we have learned.

I Disease of cattle destroys the red blood corpuscles. Stricken animals become anemic, emaciated, often die. On June 17, veterinary scientists announced achievement of a long-sought goal-successful development of a vaccine as an aid in the prevention and control of anaplasmosis, a major cattle disease. It resulted from combined efforts by researchers at Oklahoma State University, Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station, and Fort Dodge Laboratories. The vaccine, tradenamed 'Anaplaz,' is now in production and expected to be available to veterinarians in mid-September. Fw cattlemen and dairymen realize the severe toll anaplasmosis takes in death losses and reduced beef and milk production. Cost of the disease is estimated at $35,000,000 to $50,000,000 each year. In Oklahoma alone, losses in a single year have been estimated to be as high as $6,900,000. Anaplasmosis has now spread to 40 states, with 6% of all the cattle in the U.S. said to be affected. It is primarily a disease of cattle, but antelope, deer, elk and related species are also susceptible and may harbor the infection. The disease is most prevalent in lowlying, moist areas and in wooded, brushy sections. Most outbreaks occur during the summer, when insects are "out," but the danger exists throughout the year. Insects transmit the disease Anaplasmosis is transmitted from infected animals to healthy animals by biting or bloodsucking insects and ticks. Mass dehorning, castrating, vaccinating and bleeding operations, in which equipment is not thoroughly cleaned and sterilized after each animal, can also spread the disease. How to recognize anaplasmosis The principal symptoms noted by owners include muscular weakness and trembling, listlessness and loss of appetite. The destruction of red blood cells makes eyes, udders and visible mucous membranes appear bleached and bledout. As the pigment released from destroyed corpuscles is deposited in the body tissues, the skin takes on a yellowish, jaundiced discoloration.

New vaccinefirst breakthrough in its control. The loss of body fluid, aggravated by the lowered intake of feed and water, results in dehydration and weight reduction. Early in acute cases the temperature runs several degrees higher than normal. In older animals that are not resistant, death may occur within 24 hours. Younger animals usually are able to survive an initial acute attack and slowly recover. Infected animalswhether the infection can be observed or not-remain carriers. Pregnant animals usually abort when anaplasmosis strikes, and dairy cows suffer 251 to 501 reduction in milk flow during the current lactation period. Reduction is also noted in subsequent lactations and their retention as producers is unprofitable. Cattle of all ages may be infected, with older animals being more susceptible than calves. Diagnosis often difficult The veterinarian may make his prestumrptive diagnosis on the basis of the animal's or herd's history, on clinical observations and postmortem findings. However, since anaplasmosis is similar to other diseases which produce anemia, jaundice and respiratory distress, accurate diagnosis may be difficult. It is often made at the time of the acute illness by microscopic inspection of' a blood sample. Or it may even be uccessary to send blood samples to a diaguost ic laboratory for comprehensivc testing. When symptoms appear, the most iilortant thing an owner can do is co tact his veterinarian for advice on diagnosis, treatment and control. If presence of anaplasmosis is confirmed, sick animals can be isolated and treated and a herd health program begun. In the past, veterinarians have had to rely solely upon expensive antibiotic prevention and treatment methods, together with isolation or slaughter of recovered animals. Today, through the development of 'Anaplaz,' it will be possible to vaccinate susceptible animals and establish a degree of resistance sufficient to eliminate death loss and prevent clinical infection. Vaccine widely tested 'Anaplaz' is an inactivated vaccine, incapable of producing disease. It has been scientifically researched, develoned and tested by controlled procedures under both laboratory and actual field conditions. Extensive trials have been conducted in herds on widely separated farms and ranches. Vaccination protected animals within herds that had a 5 ; -8' anaplasmosis death loss. Due to the geographic variations in the incidence and severity of the disease, an anaplasmosis control program, including vaccination, should be set up to fit the particular need of the herd. 'Anaplaz' is a prescription biological product. Warning: Restricted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to use by a licensed veterinarian. Consult your veterinarian.

A pth O ~ale TO BE HELD OCTOBER 22 AT THE DOTHAN FAIRGROUND IN DOTHAN, ALABAMA SELLING 60 LOTS Show Begins at 9:00 Sale Begins at Noon For Information Contact: SOUTHEASTERN Shorthorn Breeders Association GILBERT MILLER, Fieldman 3526 Stardust Circle Phone: 289-2108 DECATUR GEORGIA Progress Is Necessary To Compete by R. G. HEINE American Shorthorn Association A THOUGHT provoking statement made by Joe Powell, from the Bureau of National Affairs, went like this, "Everything now being done is going to be done differently, it's going to be done better-if you don't do it, your competition will." Let us pause for a moment and analyze the above statement, then conscientiously look around and observe some of the changes that have taken place within our life span. One for instance, we have gone from riding horseback to riding airplanes, from walking on this earth to walking in the sky. Wherever you look there is one thing quite evident, much time, money and effort are being spent on research to improve most everything you see and do these days. There is a great deal of research being done on the food we eat. Scientific methods are applied to almost every phase of food production and processing, yet basically it is the same food we have been eating for years with improved methods of production and processing applied. In the manufacture of machinery there is one process that stands out above all others and that is the improved method of lubrication. It has taken the automobile from a 25 mile an hour machine to a 70 and 100 mile an hour car, increasing its life usefulness more than threefold. The material used in manufacturing the automobile is practically the same as that in years past. It was not the discovery of oil but its better application or use that has made the difference. You're probably wondering what all this has to do with Herd Classification! The Shorthorn breed has changed in type and conformation in the last 50 or 100 years. Yet, in the analyses, we are dealing with the same material. It is also the oldest of the three major beef breeds. The other breeds originated from basically the same seed stock and from the same areas, yet the Shorthorns as a breed are outnumbered by the other breeds! What is the reason? Could it be there is something that we as breeders are overlooking? Is there something within the breed that we are not making full use of? Are we just cruising along at 35 miles an hour when we could be doubling our speed if we improved our methods and product? Remember the efficiency of the machine was accomplished by improved lubrication. In looking around, there are any number of Shorthorns or Polled Shorthorns of ideal type that will produce the desired carcass for the trade of today. Are we DALE PROCTOR, 4-H'er from Eagle Lake, poses the Shorthorn steer he purchased from Smith Ranch, Winter Haven. making full use of these better cattle and using them to their best advantage to improve the breed? Are we getting them out to our commercial bull trade? To new breeders and the average farm trade? How can we best promote the better type cattle within this breed? How can we get these better cattle out in the "limelight" and make full use of their potentiality? I believe by type classification along with progeny testing and doing this on a national basis would go a long way toward accomplishing the job. Personally, I believe herein lies the secret of success in the Shorthorn and Polled Shorthorn breed. At the time the national association inaugurated the type classification program, they wanted to set forth the ideal characteristics of the breed that would directly influence requirements for the production of high quality beef. Also, to obtain records that would enable the breeder to more rapidly eliminate the undesirable characteristics. Further, it would be an opportunity to assemble information useful to owners and interested parties. Of course there are some breeders who say, "I can classify my own herd better than any outsider." This is very true. There are dozens of well qualified breeders that are fully capable of doing a very fine job of classifying. These breeders are doing a wonderful job in developing and bringing out good doing cattle. But these breeders are outnumbered by those who lack experience-beginners and those who do not have common every day breeding knowledge. These breeders will undo the work of the better breeders and waste a good percentage of the better breeding stock before they have a chance to accomplish the good for the breed that they would be capable of doing. It can be said that because of this lack of knowledge, a good percentage of our better breeding cattle are lost annually. Practically all commodities such as fruit, grain and slaughter cattle as well as "meat," the finished product, is sold on a grade basis, yet all of the breeding stock that produce these slaughter cattle are not graded. This is left up to the individual breeder to select the type and set the standard for the breed. As an example, if we took a registered male The Florida Cattleman 52

Whereas, if we had left him as a bull and sold him for breeding purposes, he would be sold with just the pedigree. There would be no reference as to type, conformation or values other than the breeders' own appraisal. The buyer would be taking his chances on what he bought, other than that he would be guaranteed a breeding bull. As I have stated before, type classification and progeny testing, long with good management practices on a national basis should be seriously considered. With all breeders striving for the same goal using this method as their guide, it should certainly get more uniformity and production into their herds and definitely should result in more wealth as well as more popularity for the breed. The mechanics of the program have been previously discussed fully in previous articles, especially the one in the 1963 herd bull edition of The Shorthorn World. Any breeder desiring to have his herd classified should contact the American Shorthorn Association. They will mail him the application blanks as well as full information on the program.

GET RESULTS WITH PHENOMINI Bring us your problem! POULTRY HEALTH SERVICE 4 M Our 17th Year of Service Box 2849 Ph. EL 4-9031 JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA A RECENT RELEASE from the American Shorthorn Association showed that Florida, for the month of April, ranked seventh among all states in increased registrations and transfers of Shorthorn cattle. Anther southeastern state, Alabama, ranked first. C. D. Swaffar, executive secretary of the association, reports that changes have been made recently in the registration certificates and transfer application. There are now only three things to remember and do: 1) Never write on the certificate of registration. 2) Do all writing on the application for transfer when an animal is sold. In cases of a bred female fill in the bottom three lines. 3) Complete the reverse side of application for registry. According to Swaffar these changes were finalized after long hours of study and research so as to make them as easy as possible for breeders. THERE WERE 7.5 million head of cattle on feed July 1, up nine percent from a year earlier, USDA reported. 54 The Florida Cattleman Pihe 2Ie SHORTHORNS BULLS -They have size, conformation and breeding to take care of the cows when put out to pasture.

Beware of Chemical Residues! by JAMES H. WHITE U. S. Department of Agriculture BEEF CATTLE growers can save themselves and the industry a mess of trouble by guarding against harmful chemical residues. Excessive residues from pesticides and other chemicals can make your beef liable to seizure. And enough of these cases could shake consumer confidence in the entire industry-such as happened with the cranberry industry several years ago. USDA's Meat Inspection Division has stepped up its surveillance program and all indications are that there will be a general tightening of the Federal Restrictions on chemical residues -whether from pesticides, drugs, or feed additives. Residue problems are most likely to result from: 1) Using contaminated grains and other feeds containing excessive amounts of chemical residues. 2) Feeding by-products such as almond hulls, peanut hay, apple pomace, and low cost animal fats. 3) Allowing livestock to graze treated fields before time specified on the label. 4) Exposing animals to drift which can occur when pesticides are applied during periods of unfavorable weather or when they are applied improperly. 5) Using improper materials and amounts in treating livestock or livestock premises. 6) Neglecting to follow label instructions when using pesticides. 7) Failing to withhold animals from the market for the required length of time after chemicals have been used. 8) Using drugs or biologics to mask illness in animals being taken to slaughter. This is not only unethical but will probably be discovered during post-mortem inspections. USDA meat inspectors have been instructed to give special attention to animals presented for slaughter having a history or showing symptoms of recent treatment. 9) Exposing animals to pesticides in empty" or partially empty containers. Here are some general rules to follow that will help keep you out of trouble: If you're a feeder, stay clear of an animal that you suspect might already contain an illegal amount of residue. With a few exceptions, chemical residues in any amount are not permitted in meat. Some pesticides can become stored in animal tissues and remain a long time. Therefore, if you buy animals containing an illegal amount of residue, it may still be there at slaughter time-even though you follow proper practices. so Is he doing his job?

One way you can lessen the chance of this problem is by knowing the history of the calves you buy. Producers and feeders can save themselves some serious problems by making sure that the feed they buy does not contain excessive chemical residues. Buy from a supplier who will stand behind his feeds. As an added precaution, you should maintain adequate records on all feeds purchased so you'll be able to trace any residue back to its source. Spot check any suspicious feed and have samples from each lot of feed analyzed as soon as possible. Avoid feeding apple pomace, almond hulls, peanut hay, corn ensilage, or cottonseed meal, and other by-products of crops treated with and carrying persistent pesticides such as one of the chlorinated hydrocarbons. These byproducts tend to concentrate pesticides used in crop production. Also, do not use left-over seed grain treated with fungicides. Here are some other general guidelines. Don't allow animals to graze an area where crops have been sprayed with a persistent pesticide for the length of time specified on the label. Apply only the recommended pesticides, in the prescribed amounts, to crops grown for feed or forage. Stop treatment within the recommended time intended. Treat anmals only with pesticides or drugs recommended for their specific needs by a competent authority such as county agricultural agent, State agricultural college specialist or veterinarian. If you depend on a publication for this type of information, make sure it is from a reliable source and is up-todate. USDA's Agriculture Handbook No. 290 is an excellent source of such information. Keep pesticides thoroughly mixed when applying them to livestock. Otherwise, some animals may receive too little of the active ingredient for adequate pest control, while others receive too much, causing a residue or safety problem. Don't use a spray or dip if an oily, gummy film appears on its surface after mixing. The insecticide may not be properly distributed in the mixture. Don't allow livestock to wade in ponds, lakes, or streams immediately after animals have been sprayed wth pesticide. Allow the spray to dry thoroughly first. Use the least persistant pesticide that will do the job. When applying pesticides by back rubbers, stop the treatment within the time limit recommended. Observe required time intervals between treatment and marketing of livestock as shown on the container label. ACCORDING TO USDA. a calf crop of 43,119,000 head is expected for the United States in 1965, compared witht the 1964 calf crop of 42,989,000, an increase of less than one percent. 58 The Florida Cattleman WEDGWORTH'S Cattle Minerals Available in S 0 0 0 Several straight mixes Protein mixes Vitamin mixes Combination mixes YOUR special mix WEDGWORTH'S, INC.

Prescribed Burning Is Valuable Tool PRETC3IED iLURzNING is increasing under expert advice of Georgia Forestry Commission foresters, with fire being used more than ever as a tool in Georgia timber7 rather than an uncontrolled destruclion: force. An explanation of this procedure was given recently in the Southern Luniberan in citing several farmers using controlled burning on slash pine planting areas. It was pointed out that ideal oveather conditions were necessary to keep the fire low and prevent it from reaching the crowns of the trees. One farmer, Foster O'Quinn in Pierce County, used prescribed burning on 80 acres of slash pine planted in 1956 this past winter. The fire was used to cut down on the fire hazard caused by heavy ground litter of broom sedge, briars and grass, plus a heavy accumulation of straw on the tree limbs. Another case was the initial use of prescribed fire recently by 0. F. McKeachin of McRae County on a six year oli slash pine plantation. The burn was conducted three days, after the last rain with clouds conditions and above average moisture content. The temperature was 50 degrees with wind from the northeast at four to six miles an hour. The stand was planted in a six by 10 spacing on old pasture land. The purpose of the burning was to reduce the fire hazard caused by the rough. The procedure used in the burning was to divide the area into 100 foot strips, and each strip was backfired. Under the conditions the burn left no damage to the pine tops and little scorching and needle loss to lower limbs. Forestry workers say the basic objectives of prescribed burning are rough reduction for wildfire control and woods work, seedbed preparation to allow for regeneration and the control of undesirable species and disease. Arthur Spear Dies Recently A FLORIDA publicist and former Minnesota advertising executive, Arthur U3. Spear, 70, died on August 10 in an Evanston, Illinois, hospital from an apparent heart attack. Spear, an information specialist with the Florida Department of Agriculture in Tallahassee, had been vacationing in the midwest. He came to Florida in 1957 as publicity director of the Florida State Fair at Tampa. In 1958, he joined the Florida Livestock Board, now a division of the Florida Department of Agriculture, as information officer for the federal-state screwworm eradication program at Sebring.

CowBelle Activities Are Listed HEADING UP an organization such as the Florida CowBelles keeps the president on a busy schedule as seen from a recent report of activities submitted by Mrs. Cedrick Smith. Jr., of Micanopv, state president of the group. Over the past few months Mrs. Smith has engaged in a number of events as a representative of the Florida organization virtually from one end of the state to the other. At the annual agriculture legislative day held recently in Tallahassee, she appeared as official representative of the CowBelles, and also served as one of the judges for the Florida Beef Council's Recipe Contest, held at the Tampa Electric Leisure House, Tampa. She also appeared on television on two different occasions over a six station outlet. The first appearance concerned an explanation of the Florida CowBelles organization and the work the ladies are engaged in. Following this, Mrs. Smith appeared over the same group of stations and explained the recipe contest which is sponsored annually by the Florida Beef Council. A host of business was conducted by Mrs. Smith and her ladies group at the mid-summer meeting of the Florida Cattlemen's Association in Naples, and the event also marked the largest attendance of CowBelles at any previous convention. She again appeared on TV over the Fort Myers station and gave a history of the Cow Belles and the first annual Cattiemen's Sweetheart Contest. As president, Mrs. Smith actively worked in the promotion of this initial event. finding Up a series of appearances recently. Mrs. Smith attended a joint meeting in Miami of the Florida Beef Council and the Florida State Restaurant Association to discuss Pan American Hlotel and Restaurant Exposition's "Master Chefs on Parade." The CowBelles lend active support to this promotional venture of the beef council. The state ladies group will cooperate again this Year with the Florida Beef Council in conducting in-store promotions of beef, Mrs. Smith said. She pointed out that the organization wants to hold more round-ups than in the past and has requested that any cattleman's wife or member of the CowBelles interested in holding one in some particular area to contact Mrs. James Stephens of Sun City, beef promotion chairman, or Mrs. Smith in Micanopy. She commented that it has been proven that the round-ups definitely sell the public on beef, and is askirig all parties to aid in the support of these worthwhile projects.

W. on Rd. 60 Beef Futures Post Gain AN IMPROVEMENT in cash cattle markets in early August enabled futures to recover about $1.00 per cwt. from their July lows. In mid-August, choice steers at Chicago were selling around $29., only $1.00 below the year's high established in June. Weekly Federally inspected cattle slaughter since mid-July has exceeded the corresponding year ago period and has been averaging over 500,000 head. However, marketings of lighter average weights has tended to mitigate the effects of the increased numbers. Judging from July 1 feeder intentions, six percent more cattle is expected to be marketed in the July-September quarter. On July 1, there were 7.5 million cattle and calves on feed, up nine percent from a year earlier. However, the number weighing over 900 lbs. was down five percent from last year, while the lighter weight categories were up 18 percent. In the five major feeding states, the number of cattle and calves on feed as of August 1 was placed at 2,966,000, down one percent from July 1 but 14 percent more than a year ago. Placements during July totaled 562,000 head, off one percent from last year. Although cattle marketings are likely to expand somewhat in the current quarter, agricultural economists expect prices to remain well above a year ago and around last month's levels.

Swift Trip (Continued from page 36) parking facilities prohibitive in cost. Congested streets characterize the market area. Constructed long before motor trucks came into general use, the market now has a major problem in moving products in and out. It was interesting to observe how the daily business is conducted-inside a sales unit, customers inspect the meat and haggle with the salesmen over the price of their selections. We saw veal hanging with the hides still on and were told that the Brooklyn Market is one of the few markets still wanting veal delivered to the sales unit with hides on. Usually customers buy in person and haul their purchases to their places of business using their own equipment. We were told that the greater part of the meat sold in metropolitan New York is handled in carlots through meat warehouses operated by large food merchandising groups. It was pointed out that this beef is in the modern warehouse of a local food chain. Supplying meats to hotels and restaurants is one of the biggest phases of the industry's business in New York. Beef cutting rooms are a vital part of this operation, and Swift's have what is known as their metropolitan hotel supply unit located on 13th Street in Manhattan. This facility was included as a part of the tour while in the city. Following the visit to the 13th Street market, we went by bus to Kearney, New Jersey, and the Van Wagenen & Schickhaus plant. This is a wholly owned subsidiary of Swift & Company, and specializes in the preparation and 70 distribution of high quality pork products and table-ready meats for the New York metropolitan area. We were taken to see another competitor of beef while on the eastern trip. This was a typical broiler house near Georgetown, Delaware, where broilers are dressed at the rate of 6000 an hour. This plant, though, is owned and operated by Swift & Company. Coming off the dressing line, ice packed broilers are boxed and in retail stores within a few hours after the dressing is completed. The tour group returned to Chicago on Thursday, April 15, where we met again with Swift officials to talk over our experiences, ask more questions and extend "goodbyes" to fellow tour participants before leaving for home. The tour certainly was of value to me and I feel that much was absorbed regarding the vast scope of our meat industry. The officials of Swift & Company are certainly to be commended for their efforts in giving members of the livestock industry such an opportunity to see first-hand many of the facets of the business not normally made available. I consider it a rare privilege to now be recognized as a "Swift Tripper." RALPH THOMPSON, cattle manager for Jo-Su-Li Farms, Inc., in Colquitt, Georgia, has announced two recent sales of Hereford bulls into Florida. Tommy Sloan of Fort Pierce purchased 20 bulls for his Cow Creek Ranch, and Warren Brewster, Jupiter, bought six. USDA REPORTED both imports and exports of meat were off sharply from yearearlier levels during the first five months of the year. The Florida Cattleman

Hereford Rally (Continued from page 64) the ruggedness of the breed and the good doing ability it seems to retain under some extremely adverse conditions. Next was a panel discussion on the subject of cattle management with Long acting as the moderator. John 1. Spooner who is chairman of the agricultural committee of the board of regents at the University of Georgia was the first panelist to speak. He told how to wean 500 pound calves from a herd of 100 cows. Spooner was followed by Troy Patterson of the department of animal science at Auburn University whose topic was the handling of replacement heifers through their second calves. The next panelist was D. H. Oswald of Ocala. president of the Florida Hereford Association. Oswald spoke on the distinct advantages of a controlled breeding program as opposed to a non-controlled program. Daniels returned to the program to discuss getting cattle research to the average breeder. In covering this subject he made one very strong point-research is being carried out by various institutions and organizations for the purpose of furthering the beef cattle industry and the results that are reached through this research are released for the benefit of the breeder. "It is good," Daniels said, "for the breeder to leave the research to the people who are best equipped to carry it out. Trying to conduct your own research program is unwise and can sometimes be quite costly.' Following this was a second panel discussion moderated by Miller which dealt wth product sales and promotion. Opening speaker of this segment of the program was Henry Matthiessen, Jr., of Still House Hollow Farm in Hume, Virginia. "The best salesman you as a breeder have," said Matthiessen, "is the bull you have already sold. If he's a good animal and does a good job for the buyer this well lead to more sales. If he does not live up to expectations he will not help your business, he will hurt it," Art Higbie, executive secretary of the Florida Cattlemen's Association, spoke on promoting the sale of beef. He outlined various projects carried out to date by both FCA and Florida Beef Council and the results from these promotional activities. Secretary of the Texas Hereford Association, Henry Elder, was the next speaker and he discussed the problem of building association memberships. Elder emphasized the fact that it is the responsibilitv of thf individual members to cultivate new members. The final panelist to speak was W. B. Austin, executive secretary of the North Carolina Cattlemen's Association. He discussed the feeder calf sales program which is carried out by his state. The concluding feature of the field day was a tour of pastures and cattle which was conducted by Cross. Here's Your Opportunity to Buy the Best!

WEST FLORIDA LIVESTOCK AUCTION MARKET LOCATED WEST END, MARIANNA, FLORIDA The Florida Cattleman Law Change Proposed For Exports ADDED PROTECTION would be available for milk-fed calves being shipped abroad by air under a USDA-proposed amendment to Federal export regulations. The proposal states that calves must be at least 10 days old and adequately fed and inspected within eight hours of shipment. Officials of USDA's Agricultural Research Service, responsible for administering regulations set up to assure that only sound, healthy animals are marketed abroad, have been concerned over deaths occurring among young milk-fed calves within several days after arrival at their foreign destinations. Air shipment of calves in crates to Europe-a recent innovation-has led to export of some calves less than a week old, Although these baby calves eave keen able to survive the trip, later have caused concern in both Euope and the U. S. The proposed change in regulations would help protect U. S. producers' foreign markets, USDA officials point out. Under the proposed regulations, calves for export that have been fed only on milk or milk replacers would have to be accompanied to the port of embarkation by a certificate issued by a Federal or other authorized veterinarian. This certificate would show that the calves were inspected and found free from communicable disease at least 10 days, but not more than 30 days, before the estimated departure date and that other conditions had been met. The proposed regulations also would require that the calves be initially held under veterinary supervision: and then be fed under supervision of a Federal veterinarian and inspected, both within eight hours of the estimated departure time. This would have to be done before they are crated or otherwise confined for shipment. The calves then would have to be moved from the final inspection point to the embarkation point under government seal or other method of supervision approved by the Federal veterinarian. The proposal replaces one published in the Federal Register on February 11 that would have required holding milkfed calves at the export point for 14 days. ALABAMA, Georgia and Florida had 87,000 cattle and calves on feed on July 1, up 14 percent from a year ago, but down 33 percent from April 1, according to USDA. TOTAL MEAT production under federal inspection for the week ended July 24 was estimated at 464 million pounds, according to USDA. 72

They have more disease and insect pests, more heat problems, more wet weather to contend with; less fertile land, and less cool weather to knock out pests. They make money, but they have to be smarter, bigger and more efficient to do it. They have to depend upon the most modem reliable methods and products to do it. That's why most ranch suppliers put a lot of effort into Florida. And part of that effort is through advertising in the magazine most read by these ranchers-THE FLORIDA CATTLEMAN.

H. Stuart of Bartow pointed out that the Polk Youth Fair will be cut back to strictly a livestock show next year. The decision was made at a meeting when the dates for the 1966 event were set for March 10 and 11. Stuart said, "The fair next season will be devoted to livestock. Rules and regulations were adopted covering a horsemanship contest, a steer show and sale, and a beef and dairy breeding cattle show." This change in operation will eliminate the thousands of homemaking and handcrafts exhibits which crowded the livestock pavilion in recent years. "The committee's plans recognize the phenomenal growth of participation in the fair," Stuart explained. "The program for this year will be geared to the development of incentives, and to a more careful measurement of quality in individual achievements ...throughout the school year in FFA, FHA chapters and in 4-H Clubs. The large animal projects, involving horses, beef and dairy cattle, will be reserved for achievement awards at the fair." The youth fair started in 1947, and quickly grew to he the biggest event of its kind in the nation, according to spokesmen. Wilson Enters Sale Manag~ement ASSOCIATED WITH the Livestock Breeder Journal, Macon, Georgia, for the past 13 years, W. Scott Wilson of that city, recently announced his resignation as fieldman for the publication. Simultaneous with his resignation, Wilson announced the formation of W. Scott Wilson Sales Service with offices in Macon, where he will service the livestock trade, both as an auctioneer and sale manager. He is a graduate of the Reppert Auction School, as well as the Graham Scientific School of Breeding. Wilson has served as auctioneer at a number of purebred cattle sales in Florida during the past several years. A TOTAL of 1431 million pounds of beef was included in the red meat production figures for May, USDA reported, which was five percent less than a year earlier. FLORIDA CROP and Livestock Reporting Service said that on July 1, Florida cattlemen were feeding 37,000 cattle and calves to reach Good and Choice grades. ACCORDING TO USDA, in contrast to 1964, cattle slaughter this fall and winter will reflect the effects of better grazing conditions and higher calf prices. The Florida Cattleman 74

These animals are being loaded for shipment to Venezuela. Fatunpa Port Facility I mproveineiit Discussed AT A meeting held recently in Tampa by agriculturists, city, county and state otficials, plans were discussed for the improvement of facilities at the Port of' Tamla which would allow for the adequate and humane handling of a minimum of 1000 head of cattle for export Pu r poses. A special agricultural sub-commit-tee of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Comm(erce, headed by R. N. Morris of the First National Bank, reviewed needs for livestock holding pens with T. C. Skinner, extension agricultural engineer, U Iniversity of Florida, Gainesville. Skinner was asked to prepare plans so that cost estimates could be ascertained for presentation to chamber directors. M. E. Twedell, manager of the Florida State Fair, and T. W. Sparks, assistant manager, both committee members, said the cost data would be part of a feasihility study to directors of the chamber and the Tampa Metroport Authority outlining the overall potentials of the ropos'rd expansion and improvement of the port facilities. Committee members and others consulted agreed that a minimum of 50,400 square feet of concrete surfaced area, almost half under roof cover, will be required to properly handle 1000 head of' mature cattle. Additionally such a complex would meet federal regulations as outlined by Dr. J. H. DeGroodt, Miami, and Dr. 13. C. Swindle, Jacksonville, USDA veterinarians. Port facilities at Tampa came under discussion at a meeting hield by the Florida International Agricultural Trade council l during the Florida ('attlemen's Association mid-year meeting at Naples 78 in .June. Victor Puig, Jr. of (itra, vice president of the Fair View Ranch divi sion of Selene Trading C'ompany. pointed out he was assembling a large herd of cattle for export to Venezuela with outshipment from Tampa by ship. He told of the need for improvement of the Tampa facilities for handling cattle at that time. G. T. Stack, council president, and Tampa Consul to Peru, appointed a committee consisting of trade council members to discuss port facilities improvements with Tampa officials. Stack and several committeeman are presently working on this project. At the Tampa meeting, Stack pointed out that "we want to shoot for the 1000 head minimum capacity.' The existing facilities at Tampa were utilized by Pu ig on June 24 when he shipped 330 head of Florida beef and dairy cattle to Caracas, Venezuela. The cattle were purchased by lanco Agricula y PeCuario of that city, and al were slated to be used for breeding Pur)soSeS in South America The planned facility, if built, would be the largest in the U.S., according to a spokesman at the Tamipa meeting. Ports in Houston, Mobile, New Orleans and Tampa are authorized shipping points with dockside facilities. Present at the dinner meeting representing South American interests were: Francisco Solarzano, vice major of Managua, Nicaragua: Alberto Reyes, minister of agriculture for Nicaragua: Norman S. Anort, director of the Banco Nacional of Nicaragua: and Dr. Fernando '. Gonzalez, viee manager of the Institute de Fonento Nacional. The Florida Cattleman

EL 4-9031 JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA Barbara and Billy Reitz Really Need Honey Bees In Their Business by ETHEL HALES STANCIL WHEN BAIuARA and Billy W. C. Reitz of Summerfield were married she knew little or nothing about the honey business. But she started to learn .by I)romptly being stung by three bees which landed her in the hospital for as many days. Barbara's doctor, who knew the love of the Reitz' for their business, told her that she'd have to learn to live with bees, if she was going to stay married to a Reitz. Ani she has, though she stot))ed tempting the hees-when she goes in the hives she wears )rotective clothing! Barbara and her husband both work for Sioux Honey Association who bought out Reitz & Brew last year. The association ships honey over much of the worldas did Reitz & Brew. But also, on their own, Barbara and Billy have 125 hives of' hees The care of the hives is fascinating. They are moved about to t)rovide the bees the best available supply of food. In early February they feed in orange groves in Florida. They are fed sugar-water until the orange flow is on. This gives the Queen hees the idea that the flow is already on and she lays bounteous eggs to provide more workers. They feed in the groves about eight weeks. In Florida the second feeding area for h( bees in the Sioux Honey Association hives is in North Florida or on the East Coast around Marineland where the gall berries provide food. The stay here is about 10 weeks. When a good feeding area is found permission is asked to plae' the bees there. Rent is usually N about 30 pounds of honey per location. I roin the gall berry grounds the bees are moved to the partridge fields in the Alachua. Hligh StIrings. Gainesville and Leesburg areas, where thev stay until near tho t'nd October. The maple blooins in swaimipy areas produce pollen for the bees during the fall. This t)oilen (not honey) helps them to build strong bodies for the winter ahead. Sugar and water mixture may be fed, too. Billv used to raise the Queen hees but now they are generally pirchased. Queen bees come in a container twice the size of a penny-match box. Ends are lugged with moistened towNdered sugar. The box with Queen inside is put in the hive. By the time the workers (8-10) who acciimpanv her to feed her eat out the ilUgs of sugar thus releasing her, she is accet)ted. Sioux Honey Association has seven plants in six states-California, Iowa, Ohio, Texas, Georgia and two in Florida (in Umatilla and in Summerfield) .The plant at Timatilla is mostly a bulk station, Handling the ('xt)ort p~aters for honey shipments abroad is interest ing.

R. CROCKETT Rforida Agricultural Experiment Slation l'zi sUiRE many of you have heard the phrase "that bull would have made a good steer." This same type of statement is heard among some horsemen. It has even been said "that stUd would have made a fair gelding." Many people are hunting for geldings, but few are offered for sale. This simply means that few stallions are being gelded but instead are being sold as stallions. The breeder undoubtedly thinks that the buyer should do the castrating. The breeder might meditate a little on what type of advertising will come his way when many inferior stallions of his breeding are floating around the country. It should be recognized that not every individual is oUIstanding and until [)reeders recognize this fact progress cannot be made. questions? HA.T YOU questions about horse breeding, feeding, diseases, training or other problems you have run into that have not as vet been answered in our Hlorsin Around column? If you have any questions at all pertaining to any phase of horses, lease send them to TiiE FLORIDA CATTLEMAN, Box 100 Kissimmee 82741. We'll pass them on to Dr. J. R. Crockett and Don L. Wakeman of the University of Florida for their comments. In order to have an average individual it must be remembered that half of the popcilation is below average, Are the below average stallions to be used to perpetuate the reed and should the average stallion even be used? Breeders argue there is no market for geldings, but this is a poor argument because it has not been proven. I wonder what a breeder vcil realize froim a sale offering a good selection of well bred two-year-old geldings? An idea might be obtained from the North Wales Farm Sale reported in the August issue of the Quarter Horse Journal. Twelve geldings averaged $2,175. Even if the two top selling geldings are not counted the remaining 10 averaged $1170. Eight of these were two-year-olds. This is not the usual sale result, but it shows what can be done with voing, well bred geldings in the sale ring. 86

In addition to the America representatives came from Europe. Asia, and Africa. Papers and reports covered wide areas of research, teaching and applied dairy science, including 100 papers covering dairv manufacturing, 157 on dai rv production and 21 invited subjects in dairy extension.

Also, abstracts of the 'Jounral of DairY Scienc will be printed in the Spanish language to me't the demand from a number of Spanish speaking countries. Another expansion of the American Dairv Science Association's international influence was the recognition off the German Dairy Science Association organized in West Germiany patterned after the one in the I US. Future ADSA plans include that every fourth yearly meeting emphasis will he placed on world dairy scince. Resolutions I _ZEISOITIONS ADOPTED in the combined ADSA business meeting included: 1) A req uest to state and federal workers to find methods to provide chemical free feed supplies. 2) A request to regulatory agencies to eliminate fu ture confusi(On of dairymen resulting from the development anI use of equipment with infinite accuracy in (Ietect ing chemicals even in amounts comnmoni 1y found mi our normal environment; and by specifying in advance the quantities of chemicals in milk that will be considered Unlawful. including the type of equipment to be used in the determinations. 3) The ITSDA Agricultural Research Service was commended for its improved and extended national sire program hased on analysis of DHIA records providing a broad base to the dairy cattle breeding program of the nation. 4) More mastitis research Was ulrgi'd and increased air for all ri titeqstl d. Committees THE VMOUS sectional committee reports included action on several phases of the dairv industry in( related work. The production and extension o-(Ibined dairy type committee urged further studies to determine if commercial dairymen in reality want any different type cow than dairy cattle breeders want. It recommended that all cows be reclassified at each classification and that changes he made in the "true-type" score card if needed to find cows that can helter stand the strain of high production. The combined breeding committees reion mended earIier the p oh1ication of Sires Predicted Difference (as increase or decrease above herd mates) instead ofil the Predicted Average (Iput in effect in the May tabulated Sire PrIroofs). It recomMended discontinuance of the use ot in complete and short-time records. The extension dairo records committee' made a recommendation for testing of additional metering devices, and no new equipment was approved. A device front Denmark was exhibited for milk weights. Studies were requested on adaptation of adequate supervision to modern dax large herd milking systems.

It is of interest that Dr. Flatt has made more energy metabolism studies within the last few years on the automated digestion chambers at the lleltsville Research Station in Maryland than all others combined had made in all the years up to that time. The new requirements point up two things: 1) Greater energy requirements per pound milk for milk production by high producers. 2) Greater gross efficiency of high producers when both maintenance and milk production requirements are considered.

ARM ETTIER flameless /T'S CHEAPER, TOO FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT COMPANY HELPING BUILD FLORIDA + Advertise! + Urea Is Good Protein Source If Fed Properly BARNEY IARRIS, JR., assistant extension dairvmani. University of I"lorida. Gainesville. recently pointed out the use of Urea as a protein replacement has been one of the major developments in ruminant feeding during recent years. As a result, dairymen and feed manufactUrers have raised many questions regarding its proper use. Harris said that urea, as a teed ingredient, is a synthetic cry stalline material produced by combining carbon dioxide an( ammonia under high pressure. It is a simple non-protein organic compound which contains as a commercial preparation 52 percent nitrogen and is potentially e(Uivalent to a 262 percent protein feed. He added that urea, as such, contains no teed value but when added to a ration adequate in energy, supplements the natural protein in feeds. All common forage crops contain some non-protein nitrogen in the form of Urea, Harris went on to say, and the level may vary trom a slight trace to 3.5 percent in suncured alfallta hay. In addition. urea is constantly formed in the liver. The ureau so formed may then either he excreted in the urine. or re-cycled into the rumen. Thus it can be seen that a small amount of urea is available at all times in the rumen, whether added to the feed or not, to be converted into bacterial protein. The rumen contains many kinds of bacteria and protozoa. Some of these micro-organisms utilize roughages while others utilize concentrates. Also, only certain kinds of bacteria can Utilize urea. along with energy feeds, to build protein. For this reason. Urea-c(ontaining rations should le graduallY introduced to the cow so that micro-organisrns that Utilize Urea wil have ample time to multiply and increase in numbers. Harris 90 said generallv seven to 10 days are requliired for the organisms within the rirnen to adapt to a new protein source sich as urea. In referring to sate levels of urea. Harris said that urea is an excellent source of' crude protein when included in the ration at the recommended levelIt is recommended that urea shOu!d not ex(eed three percent of the concentrate mixture or one percent of the total dairy dation. Thus, dairymen feeding a single mix with little or no rouglhage chOlld add one percent urea or 20 pounds per ton of teed. Harris warned that urea, as manv other feed ingredients. can cause toxicity in dairv animals if fedl above the reconmended level. High quantities Of urea suddenlV introduced into the rumen cause a rise in the urea and ammonia (concentrations of the sy\-stemic blood.

Choose ADAMS BLACK DURO BULLDOG DURABLE by T. J. CUNHA Department of Animal Science Florida Agricultural Experiment Station Mineral Consumption by Cattle Varies THERE ARE many factors which influence mineral consumption by cattle. It is important to understand these factors since the level of mineral intake may necessitate some variation in the formula to insure an adequate intake of mineral elements. Following are some factors which influence the intake of minerals by cattle: 1) Usually, the higher the level of soil fertility, the lower the consumption of minerals. 2) Some forages cause an increase in mineral consumption, whereas others lower it. Cattle on native range consume more mineral than those on improved pastures. Usually, when forages are growing rapidly there will be less mineral consumption than during the periods of the year when plant growth is slow or stops. Cattle on low quality and overgrazed pastures consume more mineral. 3) The kind and level of supplemental feeding will influence mineral intake. 4) Growth rate, percentage calf crop, and milk production influence mineral needs. The added requirements of gestation and lactation increase mineral needs. 5) The amount of minerals in the drinking water influences'mineral intake as will as dietary needs. 6) The palatability of the mineral mixture affects intake. If the mixture is not palatable enough, the cattle may not consume enough mineral to satisfy their needs. If the mineral mixture is too palatable, they may consume too much and develop mineral imbalance. Cane molasses, cottonseed meal. and other ingredients may be added to mineral mixtures to increase their palatability, but they must be used in moderation or they will cause over consumption of the mineral mixture. 7) Mineral boxes which keep out the rain help increase mineral intake. Minerals should not be allowed to cake in the box, as this decreases consumption. Boxes should be constructed so that the calves can also consume mineral from them .Keeping the mineral supply fresh increases its consumption. 8) Less mineral is consumed if the cattle have to travel long distances to the mineral box. Mineral boxes should be located near the water supply or where the cattle rest. 9) Moldy mineral boxes will lessen consumption. Use mineral mixtures which will not spoil during damp, wet weather or blow away in windy weather. The use of 20 to 40 percent salt prevents molding and blowing. This discussion indicates there is considerable variation in the amount of mineral consumed, depending on the kind of forage and soil, level of fertilization, time of the year, kind of cattle, level and kind of supplementation on pasture, stocking rate, level of mineral in the drinking water, growth rate, calf crop, milk production, and other factors. This means it is very difficult to estimate the mineral consumption per cow on a particular ranch operation. In Florida this level can vary from 20 pounds on up to 60 or more pounds per cow. The final criterion on mineral adequacy is how the animal is performing. Rapid growth rate, high calf crop percentage, and heavy weaning weights are a good indication that the mineral supplementation program is adequate. If these production factors are low, mineral supplementation, as well as all other phases of the beef production program, should be studied. Those who do not have Florida Agricultural Experiment Station Bulletin No. 683 entitled "Minerals for Beef Cattle in Florida" can obtain a copy from their county I agent or by writing us. This bulletin is an excellent source of information on all phases of mineral supplementation of beef cattle. Circular on Pasture Rotation FLORIDA AGRICULTURAL Experiment Station Circular S-153 entitled "Tomato and Pangola Grass Rotation for Sandy Soils of South Florida" by N. C. Hayslip, E. M. Hodges, D. W. Jones and A. E. Kretschmer, Jr. is available at your county agent's office. Its summary states as follows: Studies begun in 1950 indicate that rotation of Pangola grass pastures and tomatoes as outlined in this circular will reduce or eliminate certain production problems which appear or increase under continuous cropping of tomatoes or Pangola grass. The land use system should be of mutual benefit to the rancher and tomato farmer, and provide efficient use of the land. In order to achieve the maximum benefits from such a rotation, a summary of "do's" and "don'ts" are summarized in the circular. The Florida Cattleman C. F. ADAMS, Inc. 420 So.

University Jersey Is Awarded Ton of Gold Certificate A RiAEISTERED Jersey cow owned by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station, Gainesville, has been awarded a "Ton of Gold Certificate" by the American Jersey Cattle Club. Columbus. Ohio. The award is for cows producing 2000 pounds fat or more during four or less consecutive lactations on official test, spokesmen pointed out. The award went to Florida Esmond Heiress on a production of 2131 pounds of butterfat-more than a ton-from 38,246 pounds of milk, According to officials of the national organization, the production of Florida Esmond Heiress far exceeds that of the 'average" dairy cow in the United States. All tests were checked both by the University of Florida and the American Jersev (attle Club. The "Ton of Gold" award aids Jersey breeders in selecting cows with consistently high production over a long period, it was pointed out. Milk Consumption In South Florida Area on Increase THE Sot TtH Florida Dairy Institute has announced the first six months of 1965 saw a steady rise in the per capital 1onsumption of milk in south Florida. As of June 30, the per capita consumption was up over the same six months the previous year, 3.12 percent. A program of promotion, publicity and advertising has seen consumption climb steadily since September, 1964. reversing a 14 year decline, officials pointed out, The past six months showed a steady increase upward over the same months of last year, starting in February at 1.60 percent: March, 2.80; April, 2.85: and May, 3.04. The promotional program in the interests of stimulating the consumption of milk was designed by Venn, Cole and Associates, Inc., a Miami public relations concern, and Bishopric-GreenFielden handled the publicity. Dairy Cover FLotiDA'S 1965 dairy princess, Ruth Ann Moore of Bradenton, is shown participating in her first official function recently in Miami. The Sotuheast Dairy Institute sponsored the first annual Dairy Bowl drum and bugle corps competition and awarded the winner a five gallon milk can as a trophy.

SIPPEL, V.M.D. Florida Dept. of Agriculture ALTHOUGH THE heat of summer is still with us, it is well at this time to look ahead a few weeks toward the time when footballs, quail, and turkey will be flying and cattlemen will be looking toward their winter pastures. It is now time to have those hunting dogs checked for heartworms and other ailments in order to allow time for treatment and recovery should any be indicated prior to hunting season. Plans should be made to worm and fluke your cattle before turning out to winter pasture. As many older animals have sufficient immunity to many internal parasites, it is well to have examinations made for worm eggs in the fecal material in order to determine if the animals need worming. This is especially true of flukes as they are not present throughout the state and it is unwise to give fluke medicine if it is not needed. Anaplasmosis is frequently diagnosed in cattle during September often in animals in the bull pasture. A new vaccine to protect animals against anaplasmosis has been developed at Oklahoma State University. Two shots, given six to 12 weeks apart, will protect animals for a year and possibly longer. It will not prevent animals from becoming carriers of the disease, but does protect them against the symptoms of the condition. Bulls that are susceptible to the disease can be protected with this vaccine. In order to know if vaccination might be indicated, a blood test can be run at this laboratory to determine if cattle are susceptible to the disease or are immune carriers. Vaccination of the latter group would not be necessary. Another method of protecting susceptible bulls is to feed them 0.25 mg. of aureomycin per pound of body weight in the feed daily. September usually sees increased numbers of calves with scours. This condition is most often caused by a bacterial infection, but can be caused by viruses, parasites, chemical irritants or other conditions. Careful attention to sanitation with milk buckets is necessary if dairy calves are to be protected against scours. Lesions on the legs of horses are caused by the transfer of parasite larvae to the legs by flies and are known in Florida as "leeches." Very prompt veterinary attention to these lesions is necessary to keep them from spreading and perhaps ruining the horse. Moldy corn poisoning in swine grazing on early soft corns is ordinarily encountered during September. Cattle and horses are also susceptible, but less frequently poisoned. 96

N. .07094 On g .0, ,, 0 ,o n,uq' During July, a case of redwater disease (Clostridium hemolyticum infection) was found in Seminole County. This location is the furthest north that we have yet encountered the disease in Florida. This condition is apt to develop wherever liver flukes exist. Fluke development in the liver causes damage which enables the germs to produce the toxin that kills the cows. Affected animals die so quickly that they are usually not seen while sick. but, rather, are found dead. Another condition found during July is called "panters." This disease is similar to heaves in horses or emphysema in people and results from an allergy to some plant in the pasture. Affected animals breath very rapidly and are quite short of breath. Only a few animals in the herd will be affected. Three herds affected with vibriosis were detected, calves with blackleg, leptospirosis, various types of cancer, pneumonia, insecticide and bracken fern poisoning and several other routine conditions were diagnosed during the month. Diseases of horses included infectious anemia, pneumonia of foals caused by a germ called Corynebacterium, leeches, meningitis resulting from an infected skull fracture, two cases of sleeping sickness, piroplasmosis, and other miscellaneous conditions. Swine diseases included enteritis, pneumonia and a fungus infection of the skin (ringworm). No new cases of cholera were reported. Henderson Is Named to Post OFFICIALS OF the United Duroc Swine Registry, Peoria, Illiftois, have announced that Bruce Henderson has been named executive secretary of the organization. He was appointed at the meeting of the board of directors of the association held during July in Des Moines, Iowa. Henderson has worked for the United Swine Registry for the past 10 years and previously had held the positions of associate, managing editor and editor of the Duroc News, a monthly magazine published by the group. He was named acting executive secretary last December when R. E. Judd resigned from that position. Henderson is a native of Iowa and has been actively engaged in the hog business since he had swine as a project in 4-H work. He received his education at Iowa State University. THE NUMBER of cows and heifers two years old and older on farms and ranches January 1, 1965, totaled 50,476,000 head, up one percent from the 49,899,000 on hand a year earlier, USDA pointed out. USDA REPORTED the number of calves born and to be born in 1965 expressed as a percent of cows and heifers two years old and older the first of the year is 85 percent compared with 86 percent in 1964. for September, 1965 97 NEW FIBERGLASS DURABLE DRY RUGGED MAINTENANCE FREE PREVENTS WASTE KEEPS MINERALS COOLER F EDERS Phone WA 8-6331, Route 1, Box 124 ARCADIA, FLORIDA -I See Me For o Feeds Minerals *Pasture Balancers Animal Health Products DEERFIELD BEACH, FLORIDA Okeechobe* RO 3-3175 Roca Raton 399-3003

This position was reaffirmed during FCA's 1965 Mid-Year Conference at Naples in June. Directors voted that "since calfhood vaccination has reduced the incidence of infection in official calfhood vaccinates to less than one percent in the state, FCA reaffirms its position that calfhood vaccination be the official Brucellosis program for the counties in Florida that are not now modified-certified or in the process of becoming modified-certified." Freedom of the individual to operate his business as he pleases is, of course, a cherished right ..but the goal of ridding Florida of Brucellosis by calfhood vaccination can only be attained by all cattlemen vaccinating their calves! Vaccinate Those Calves! WHO Is going to decide whether or not you vaccinate your calves? This answer should be obvious. The responsibility of deciding whether or not you vaccinate your calves for Bang's rests with each individual cattleman. We're sure you realize that no one else can make this decision for you. FCA can continue to remind you that calfhood vaccination of your heifer calves is of vital importance to the future of Florida's cattle industry, but the final decision is still yours. We hope that all cattlemen that are now vaccinating their calves will assume the responsibility of discussing the importance of calf vaccination with his neighbor who is not vaccinating and urge him to start a vaccination program. Remember, the time for action is now! Has Your Association Paid Its Dues? IOCAL ASSOCIATION dues were payable several months ago, but to date a few associations still have not paid. The Florida Cattlemen's Association is now in the latter part of another active and worthwhile year. FCA's record has been established through the conscientious efforts of each affiliated association and the individual members that are the life-blood of each local unit. Although dues collections this year aren't really bad, let's all aim for 100 percent collections right now and make this one of the best years in this respect. Check to see if your association has paid. If it hasn't, do what you can to see that they are paid in full soon! Yon Are Needed at St. Augustine! YOUR ATTENDANCE at the two membership meetings that are held by the Florida Cattlemen's Association each year helps to make FCA a growing and progressive organization and to make you, as a member, an effective part of your association. You won't have to wait very long to get an opportunity to attend one of these meetings because the 1965 FCA Convention will be held in St. Augustine October 13-15! Interested in committee work? Serving on the various committees of the Florida Cattlemen's Association is an important job. If you're called on to be a committee member please step forward and do your job well. Be sure to volunteer for duty if you're particularly interested in serving on a definite committee. Your help is needed and will be heartily welcomed by FCA officers. We'll see you in St. Augustine in October! 98 The Florida Cattleman

AVAILABILITY M ineral-Vit aninProtein supplement mixes generally fall into three categories: 1) Those which contain every known ingredient, with the hope of covering whatever the cow might need, vet with little regard for proper ratios, 2) Those with the proper ingredients combined in the ratio found in the cow's bodv; and 3) P.D.Q. with the proper ingredients combined with relation to those found in pastIres and water, in the ratios necessary to coniiurt to the ratios the cow is known to need. Take Calcium and Phosphorus for example: Cows utilize them in the ratio of about 1-1 2 to 1. But they don't digest equally, so we mix them so ffhey are digested 1-1 2 to 1. This is the wax we combine all the ingredients of P. D. Q., so they react to each other to provide the needed nutrients after digestion and aid in the assimilation of grass and feeds-That's availability! We go even further. P. D.
